This dress makes me think of Betty Draper of Mad Men, even if I’m not even close to look like her (too bad!).
I didn’t line it, I wanted it to be light for summer (if such a thing will ever happen…). So I used facing instead for collar, sleeves and hem.
It’s shorter than the original. And the waist isn’t gathered but pleated.
I love my Betty Draper dress! :)
